Battery Replacement Becomes a Logic Board Issue. (I'm Suspicious)
I have a 13" Mackbook Pro (mid 2014).
I have never had a problem with it, but all of a sudden I started to get replace battery
warning on the laptop. To verify it was in fact the battery, I ran a diagnostics TechTool Pro 9.6.2 Build 3820 on the laptop. It confirmed that the battery needed replacement.
I didn't want to change the battery myself, so I did what every other non geek does and brought into the Apple store.
They sent it out, because for some unknown reason they don't do that in house.
I just got an email from them saying that the logic board has to be replaced at a cost of $475.
I work I.T for a living and have heard off and personally seen situations where consumers at the Apple store are misinformed and ripped off for diagnosis that are in fact wrong.
I told them to just replace the battery, They said no. I said ship it back.
I just purchased the battery kit from here and will do the job myself.
Anyone have any ideas here?
Is this a good question?
